Am I My Sister's Keeper? - Poem by Ruthe Spacht

I had better be.
What benefits my mother, niece,
Daughter and the neighbor lady
Will also benefit me.
Her working conditions,
How much she earns,
Her crisis, her problems,
Are all my concerns.
Her children are my children,
Her yearnings are mine.
A Christian sharing of the burden
All along the line.
A cheerful encouragement
Of the flowering of the vine.
Am I my sister's keeper?
I had better be.
What benefits my mother, niece,
Daughter and the neighbor lady
Will also benefit me.
